Inauguration: FG declares May 29th work free day
The Federal Government of Nigeria has declared Monday 29th, 2023, work free for all workers in the country, to commemorate the inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as 16th President of Nigeria.
The declaration was made by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, in Abuja on behalf of the Federal Government.
The Minister felicitated with all Nigerians on the momentous occasion, commending them for their faith in democracy as expressed in the nationwide election that produced the President and his Deputy being inaugurated and indeed in all elections across the nation.
He enjoined them to continue to support and promote democracy through adherence to the rule of law and uphold all democratic institutions.
He said, “Democracy anywhere is an unfinished business and the only way it can keep developing and serve its end of being the vehicle to good governance and the welfare of all the people is by adhering to its tenets of rule of law, support for democratic institutions, promotion of free and responsible press and advancement of the frontiers of freedom for all the people.
Aregbesola urged Nigerian also to continue to promote ideals of peaceful coexistence and love for their neighbours, noting that “we can only practice democracy and enjoy its dividends in a peaceful environment.”
